Exploring Waco, TX














During my trip to Waco, we were able to see a lot more in town than just Magnolia Market. The town is home to lots of shopping, several attractions, and local food. I really enjoyed visiting Waco because I had never spent much time in Texas, and it was cool to see a smaller town. Check out some of the other things we did during our trip to Waco: 

+ Shopping
  • Magnolia Market- Magnolia was the main reason we travelled to Waco, and you can read all about that in my last blog post.
  • The Findery - The Findery is located right across the street from Magnolia, and has a lot of similar items. There is also clothing and jewlery. 
  • Spice Village - This is a collection of stores located in downtown Waco. You can find almost everything here - Baylor spirit gear, clothing, Lilly Pulitzer products, Kate Spade products, and home goods.
  • Harp Design Co. - Fixer Upper isn't the only HGTV show to come out of Waco! Harp Design Co. is full of handmade wood products.
  • Junque in the Trunk - This is another great stop for the farmhouse style and antiques. Joanna Gaines even shopped here during season 2 of Fixer Upper! 
+ Attractions
  • The Suspension Bridge - This is a pedestrian bridge and a good photo op. The bridge stretches across the Brazos River and has parks on either side. The Riverwalk also extends across town. 
  • Dr Pepper Museum - For a little piece of history, stop by the Dr Pepper Museum. You'll see how it's made and lots of old advertisements. It only takes a few hours and the tour is self-guided.
  • Waco Mammoth National Monument - This excursion was probably my favorite thing, after visiting Magnolia. The tour takes you to on a short trip into the woods and you're able to see fossils of a herd mammoths and a camel.
  • Cameron Park Zoo - We didn't actually visit the zoo in Waco on this trip because we already had plans to go to the Dallas Zoo over Spring Break. However, it looks like it has a lot of cool animals!
  • Baylor University Bear Habitat - There is a lot of pride for Baylor in Waco. The colors are prevalent and a lot of the stores we shopped in featured Baylor spirit items. Stop by and see the famous bears on campus.
+ Food
  • Olive Branch Bakery & Cafe - We ate here in between shopping. The cafe is located downstairs from Spice Village. I would definitely recommend the bread bowl!
  • Heritage Creamery - If you're in the mood for ice cream, stop at the Heritage Creamery next to Baylor University. Their ingredients are all local and the staff is extremely friendly!
